Acne Dos and Don’ts

Acne is a truly annoying thing. What most people don’t know is that they often make it worse for themselves. They do things they shouldn’t do, and don’t do the things they should do. Acne can be a lot easier to manage if you just follow some basic dos and don’ts.

 

Do:

1.    Make sure that your skin is properly cleaned.

This is so basic, but most people get lazy or don’t keep it up. Skin cleansing is pretty simple, using just basic skin care products. Even warm water will do a good job of helping the skin freshen up and unclogging pores.

Always remember to give your skin a good rubdown with a clean face washer or towel. This improves skin circulation like a good massage and also makes sure that the surface areas are thoroughly clean.


2.    Use the big range of reliable products available to ensure skin health.

These products include:

  • Kaolin clay
  • Aloe Vera
  • Jojoba
  • Vitamin E creams and lotions

These products are designed to improve skin health and make sure the skin can function properly. They extract deep impurities from the skin. They also improve the skin’s ability to defend itself and improve its general health.

3.    Be quick to deal with any outbreak.

Getting on top of acne fast prevents it spreading and prevents the “acne cycle”, in which one crop of zits is replaced by another. The faster you get moving to stop acne, the less trouble it will be. The problem is that acne, particularly severe acne, can cause the skin to become even worse as it progresses.

4.    Test any new skin care product before you use it.

This is particularly important for people having sensitive skin. The test is to make sure your skin doesn’t have a negative reaction. Acne makes the skin look bad, but a serious negative reaction to a chemical can be much worse. Just use a little on the skin before applying it.

5.    Always make sure to deal with any oily or dry skin conditions. Oily skin is a typical cause of acne, and dry skin can suffer severely during acne outbreaks. Dealing with these issues will actually prevent acne and make any outbreaks much less virulent and easier to manage.

 

Don’t:

1.    Ignore any troublesome acne, particularly if it’s painful or looks unusual. Acne can get a lot worse, and in rare cases it can cause serious medical issues. Avoid touching it and use skin applications and a healthy diet to resolve the issue.

2.    Forget to clean properly. This is simply asking for more acne. The skin will suffer a lot more because the buildup of grime will simply cause more zits.

3.    Scratch or touch acne. You can actually turn a minor zit into a major nuisance if you scratch it or make it bleed.

4.    Use any acne product that causes an adverse skin reaction. This is a real issue, because some people’s skin simply won’t tolerate some chemicals.

5.    Use dirty cleaning materials. Keep everything that goes anywhere near your acne as clean as possible, all the time. Dirty face washers or towels can simply transfer more contaminants to the skin.

 

Just do what you need to do, and don’t do what you shouldn’t do. The rest is easy.
